100 Mile House Wranglers push ahead of Kamloops Storm

A 5-2 win over Kamloops gives Wranglers a lead on the table

The 100 Mile House Wranglers of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League have broken the deadlock between the Kamloops Storm after winning two games this weekend, including a 5-2 win over the Storm.

It was assisted by defenceman Aidan Morrison. Two minutes later, Kamloops found their answer with Brendan Mucha. His goal was assisted by Adam Ferreira and Jayden Castle. Mucha’s goal ended the first period 1-1.

Most of the scoring happened in the second period, started by Garrett Ewert of Kamloops at 14:45. However, Logan Gooder-Zimmer scored his first goal in the KIJHL do level the game again at 2-2. The Wranglers’ defenceman’s goal added gusto to the performance of his team. Darian Long (powerplay) and Cody Barnes potted two more goals for the visiting side, bring the team to a 4-2 lead at the end of the second.

Khale Skinner scored his seventh goal in as many games in the third period, giving the Wranglers the last goal in their 5-2 win.
